Panel is not showing as an Extension in Photoshop CS5 (Windows 7 OS)

I'm attempting to create a panel using Configurator 2.0 (using Windows 7 OS) for Photoshop CS5, and can't get it to show at all in my Window>Extensions menu. I have ran the program as Administrator, and it gives me a successful save message, but once I try to export (which says it is successful as well) then reboot photoshop it doesn't show it at all. I have searched and searched to see what I have been doing wrong, but I can't get it to show. I've also tried installing it via Adobe Extension manager, but it says the file is missing. I simply have no idea how to fix it. Any advice here would be appreciated.

    I too am having the exact same issue, I just started up a new win7 machine and have all new installs of my adobe software and tried to recreate the configurator panel I created in my Vista version and I can't get it to show.



    I did get it to work by playing around with the extensions manager. I wish I could remember exaclty what I did but I think I basically dragged the folder that contained the extension file onto the ext man and then it said I couldn't do it because I wasn't administrator and asked me if I wanted to do it form the other user which was the computer name so I said yes and it worked. I don't know if this helps but I thought I'd let you know.
